2019 Discussion Challenge

First of all, Happy New Year! I always think New Year's Eve is vaguely depressing, but I've realised I actually do like New Year's Day. I'm feeling pretty positive about this year (touch wood) so I thought I better do something positive on the blog too. I've seen the discussion challenge floating about a lot, hosted by Nicole@Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon@ It Starts at Midnight, and I love discussion posts (reading and writing.) I don't do as many as I'd like to, so thought I'd give it a go. I'm just going to play it safe though and go for 1-10 posts as a goal (Level 1: Discussion dabbler). 

Here's the official rules (as copied and pasted from the sign up post) if you want to join in too: 

  • - Create a sign-up post announcing your intention to participate and link up below. There’s no need to say what your discussion posts will be about–just tell us you’re joining and let us know your goal. (Can be in an update post or a post with other challenges–you’re not required to make a completely separate sign-up post.)
  • - Please link back to both challenge hosts and include the challenge button in your sign-up posts.
  • - The challenge runs from January 1st until December 31st, 2019. Sign-ups will remain open through December 31st, 2019. (So, you can sign up all year long! Come join us!)
  • - Share it! The more people we get to participate in this, the more awesome discussions we can all be a part of and the more fun it will be! So, invite your friends to join us!
  • - Discussions can be about whatever you want as long as it’s relevant to books or book blogging (no discussions about things that are completely off-topic like travel or fashion, etc). They can also be about you personally if it’s a get-to-know-you type post.
  • - On the 1st of every month, a link-up will go up on both Feed Your Fiction Addiction and It Starts at Midnight where you’ll leave your links for that month’s discussions. Every month, we’ll update this 2019 Book Blog Challenge Page with the links to that month’s Challenge linky–so you’ll always know where to find the latest link-up!
  • - There will also be monthly giveaways, so make sure you check in!
  • - Every month, we’ll feature our favorite posts from one challenge participant. There will be extra options in the Rafflecopter for commenting on posts by our featured blogger.
  • - Use the hashtag #LetsDiscuss2019 to share your progress and connect with other participants on Twitter.

The Levels:

1-10 – Discussion Dabbler
11-20 – Creative Conversationalist
21-30 – Chatty Kathy
 31-40 – Terrifically Talkative
41+ – Gift of the Gab

I'm looking forward to reading people's discussions and having a reason to write big ramble-y posts of my own. Since I'm trying to be less long winded with my reviews... Here are a few of my previous discussion posts, if you want a feel of my discussion style. 


  1. So happy you're joining us for the challenge!! I'm off to go read a few of your past discussions now... :-)
